A Billion Dollar Lesson
“Whatever is inside you, and I do mean whatever, at some point in time, for some reason, and in some way, will come out.”
A net worth of 2.3 billion dollars can buy courtside seats and more but they cannot cover up what’s truly inside of a person. Mark Stevens, the now-infamous Golden State Warriors investor / executive team member could have benefited from doing some serious internal work on his character before Game 3 of the NBA Finals. The $500,000 fine he received for shoving and cursing at Toronto Raptor’s guard Kyle Lowry is nothing. Being banned from going to any more Warriors games this year or next probably will hurt him more. Giving a black eye to a golden organization and no doubt severely straining important relationships within the organization will be difficult. The possibility (perhaps eventuality) of being forced to divest his shares in the organization would be very painful. Losing his reputation on a national stage — well, no amount of money can buy that back. Thankfully, and to Lowry’s credit, he didn’t retaliate in kind.
